Owners Manuals
« on: February 16, 2010, 06:13:35 AM »
Hi, just bought a 97 v6auto (Holden badged) that came with no owners manual.  This seems to be a recurring issue.  Is there a realiable source that I can download an electronic copy of an owners manual from this site, or someone who could send me one?

Is it possible to store these in a library on this site so that others in a similar predicatment can also get a copy?

Cheers.

There wasn't a specific Holden manual as far as I know.
There's a link here:http://www.v6calibra.net/ for the standard manual.
It's in three parts although there is some Holden manuals further down the home page for specific areas like ABS and air con etc

Thanks dude.  Great link but can't get the .zip files to open.  Used a number of utilities on XP and Windows 7 but no luck.  Does anyone have an MS-Word or .pdf formatted copy that I could have?

Cheers

Thanks Will, looks like PKUNZIP is the key.

Now have new car and owners manual.

Bugger! Could unzip files with PKUNZIP however this reported an error and didn't unpack all of the pages from each of the .zip files. (Hate this technology stuff)

If anyone has a unzipped copy of the owner manual with all of the pages intact would you please post it to my SkyDrive at:

Thanks.

If you have any problems accessing the folder please let me know as I may need to set up specific permissions.

Thanks.
